Menstrual period migraine

Common Questions and Answers about Menstrual period migraine


Avatar n tn Does anyone here suffer from menstrual migraine, particularly with vertigo/dizziness? For the past few months, it seems about every two weeks - usually the week before and the week during my period - I get near constant dizziness. Sometime I'll get a one-sided headache, but not always. I usually often see tiny pinpoints of light now and then too - though they're not always associated with the vertigo or the headache.

Avatar f tn * Orudis * Advil and Motrin (600-800mg) * Nalfon * Naprosyn(available in combo with Imitrex called Treximet) * Relafen * Aleve NSAID treatment should be started two to three days before the menstrual period starts and continued until the period ends. Because the therapy is of short duration, the risk of gastrointestinal side effects is limited.

Avatar f tn About 8 years ago, she underwent a hysterectomy, which she hoped would alleviate her migraine pain since they seemed to be related to her menstrual cycle. However, her migraines persist in a similar pattern occuring almost every month. She is not taking any hormone therapy. I am wondering what could be causing her migraines to continue, and were they even related to her menstrual cycle to begin with? Could her migrains have anything to do with the tubal ligation?

Avatar n tn Premenstrual syndrome is the name of a group of physical and emotional symptoms that start 7 to 14 days before your menstrual period begins. The symptoms usually resolve within a few days after bleeding starts. White milky discharge just prior to ovulation is due to the hormonal changes during ovulation.They are due to LH surge and raised Estrogen levels. You can control it by lifestyle adjustment.

1673736 tn?1304180812 o female and have chronic pain from scar tissue in my lungs. I have had migraines since I was 16 years old. They come with my menstrual cycle. This week, I have had and still have a migraine for two straight days. It started off with a very bad one the other morning where I kept vomiting and it hurt like crazy. Nothing would help and I couldn't hold still. I have preventative meds to take and others but when mine get full blown there is nothing I can do about it except ride it out.
Avatar f tn If the migraine headaches started after you had your implanon, then this is indeed more likely be the cause. But there is such a thing as menstrual headaches which are migraine-type pain that occurs shortly before, during, or immediately after menstruation and also at mid-cycle at time of ovulation. This is usually caused by variances in estrogen levels. Vasoconstrictors and/or anti-inflammatory drugs taken before and during menstrual period may prevent headaches.

Avatar m tn I have a regular period, 28 day cycle, with rarely anything other than mood swings and headaches the 2 or 3 days leading to my period. This month, exactly 1 week ago today, I started having lower abdominal cramps. Mild ones like menstrual cramps, off and on, I was also experiencing some constipation. When I was able to go it would not relieve the cramps. These cramps have been going on for 7 days now and my period isn't due for another 7 days.
Avatar f tn Progesterone is elevated in the second half of the menstrual cycle and drops to very low levels right before the pre-menstrual period. In my case Im guessing it is not raising high enough for me. Then it says the problem with hormones during menstruation occurs when progesterone is converted into another hormone called allopregnanolone, which acts like a sedative, or valium or even alcohol. This hormone can make you feel relaxed,reduce anxiety, and eveb reduces seizures.

Mine were called intractible common migraines. I looked up intractible and it meant stubborn, hard to manage... a very good description of my headaches!

Avatar f tn For myself personally, I used to have a debilitating migraine every month at the start of my period, as well as random migraines once every few months triggered by barometric pressure. When I'm on Trinessa (norestimate and ethinyl estradiol) it eliminates the hormonally induced migraines but not the others.
